Why isn't Brian Boitano doing this?

because he CAN cook! (that is to say, he has a known quality, kinda liken cheating.)

I'm sorry... I forgot to thank you for posting this info.

Lanie is right, this should be really interesting.

Johnny has to realize that not everyone is on a low fat figure skater's diet

Oh damn... I was going to watch it tonight and then got sidetracked. How did Johnny do?

Johnny was eliminated in the second round, one of the reasons was his portions were too small, another was he wasn't creative enough with the use of one of the ingredients.

This is the second cooking program that Johnny has been on and his cooking was praised both times but he was also criticized for making his meals too bland because he does cook fat free.

And, he acted like a total prat when he was eliminated. He threw his apron over his head and left the stage sobbing. It was pathetic.

I think the sobbing was a joke.

:lol: I missed the show, and I do enjoy watching Chopped. Really creative what these cooks come up with on the fly, and really brave of them to take on the time-limited, ingredient-limited challenges. Maybe Johnny should flex his cooking chops and offer to cater for celebrations at Sochi! Johnny is definitely a diva of many talents. :)

On the Chopped website, the second and third videos show highlights of the Round 4 match in which Johnny was a contestant:

Fat-free doesn't have to be bland. I'm pretty sure that herbs and spices have little or no fat content.

Re his exit, I thought that was just kind of a lame joke on his part.

Johnny had the same issues when he was on Rachel vs. Guy earlier this year. Who won that anyway? I stopped watching after Johnny was eliminated.

I like Chopped, but I hate the episodes when the contestants aren't actually chefs, like last night. I want to see what cool things real chefs can do with crazy ingredients. I don't want to see what celebrities (or lunch ladies) would make out of chicken tenders and avocado! Maybe if they gave the celebrities a whole cow's head...
